Pulled Chicken for the 4th on the 3rd

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My earlier thread feedback (Thanks Foamheart) led me to doing smoked pulled chicken as a second protein for a party this evening.

 

My plan is to Smoke the Chicken Breasts and thighs with apple and pecan until they reach 150.

At 150 I will transfer to a Nesco (big crockpot) to finish and transport to the party.

 

I skipped a brine on this one, figured that since the chicken will be pulled and finished in a blend of chicken stock and bbq sauce.

I rubbed with a low salt, brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, onion, and chili powder rub.

I am going to let them rest for about 2 hours in the fridge before tossing on the smoker.

 

Here are the first pics:

 

 

Thighs are in the fridge already!

The chicken reached 150, (forgot to take a picture before I dropped it in the Nesco)  I mixed some Chicken Stock with some BBQ sauce to cook it the rest of the way.  Once ready to pull, I will drain off and save the juice to make a sauce with.  Pull, mix in the sauce the finish at the party!

 

Thanks for looking!

 

Sausage on now.

 

Smoke ON!

Well, the chicken was a hit!

Sorry I did not take pics as I was pulling, we were running late for the party.

I added some honey pecan BBQ sauce for a light flavor.

 

Juicy and good.  Only a few people elected to have the sandwiches topped with a bit of slaw.

 

Thanks for looking

 

Smoke ON!

Now you have another recipe to add to your book, and next time ya make it you'll better know what to expect and you'll tweak it a bit more. Try sometime at home the pulled chicken tacos, just throw in the crockpot after smoking overnight on low with taco seasoning.

 

Glad it worked out great for you, course you knew it would. Hard to beat a good chicken.

 

Pffft...... no pictures. You gotta work on that.

 

LOL... great job.

Richie-

Yeah, we were running late and I could not really take a picture while pulling as my hands were a bit messy.

 

Thanks for looking!
